Via Make, Photozz decided to make his peripherals turn off when his screen saver goes on.
He created this with some solid state relays he got off Ebay that he had left over from his Christmas project. He is using software that works off the Printer pins created by Neil Fraser which appears to be written in VB 6. If someone would want to update this to .Net 2.0 (or .Net 3.0), you may want to look at the System.IO.Ports.SerialPort class.
